Prizes to USA high school student teams for product designs that offer solutions to societal and environmental problems. Participating teams of grade 9 to 12 students will design an innovative product to address issues in areas such as transportation, safety, healthcare, nutrition, security, recycling, sustainable transportation, energy efficiency, and green infrastructure.
Jump into innovation and work in teams of 2 – 4 to design a product solution that will help solve an environmental or societal problem in your home, school, community, or global population. Then, create a product design blueprint and submit a 60 – 90 second video discussing the problem, how your product can help solve it, and your team’s process using the 6-step engineering design process: Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Test, and Improve.
The Making for Good Challenge encourages young makers across the nation to innovate with purpose. Student teams are invited to develop a unique product design solution that either meets an underserved societal or environmental need. Solutions must be a new product or idea and can’t be a new use for an existing product. Proposed design solutions should fall under one of the below topic areas:
What kind of product would address an issue in healthcare, safety, transportation, disaster resilience, infrastructure, security (such as cameras and monitoring), employment, automation of routine tasks, elderly care, childcare, education, nutrition, physical health, and more? How can you help to solve or improve some of these societal necessities?
Human influence has resulted in changes to our natural environment. How can we work together to help solve some of these issues? Explore environmental needs like coastal shoreline restoration, green infrastructure, carbon footprint reduction, clean air and water, recycling, sustainable power sources, sustainable transportation, up-cycling, improved materials and energy efficiency, smart cities, and more. How can you help to improve or solve some of these environmental needs?
